I think Jon Sumdra (gun writer) uses them quiet a bit. I have never had any dealings with them.
Speaking of McGowan Barrels, my Dad sent them his .243 Browning BLR and had them re-barrel it about 10-15 yrs ago. My Dad had them install a 26" Douglas barrel, at least that's what he told me. It shot very well when he first got it back. I have it now, but don't shoot it as much as I do my bolt rifles. JohnnyK.
